>>> right now on "andrea mitchell reports" critics corner susan rice's three inquisitors challenge her explanation on benghazi. >> it is clear that the information that she gave the american people was incorrect when she said that it was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. >> my belief is, not only is the information bad, and i'm more convinced than ever that it was bad, it was unjustified. to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama. three weeks before an election. >> ambassador rice said today absolutely it was wrong. i don't understand the cia said clearly that information was wrong. and they knew by the 22nd it was wrong. yet, they have not cleared that up with the american people. >> in a statement just now, susan rice admits that the initial information about a protest in benghazi was incorrect, but says no one intended to mislead the public. business as usual, congress is back and picks up just where it left off. stalemated over tax rates and entitlement spending. >> unfortunately, there's one obstacle standing between congr
. >>> right now on "andrea mitchell reports," in from the cold, david petraeus goes to the hill to tell what he knew about the deadly benghazi attack and when he knew it. >> general petraeus's briefing was comprehensive. i think it was important that added to our ability to make judgments about what is clearly a failure of intelligence. >> congress arranged for him to come and leave without having to face the guat lent of cameras in the wake of his resignation over that scandal. >> you can blame it on us. we wanted to spare him that. you know, for any, you know, wait that you did i apologize. there's a lot of suffering going on. >> certain amount of -- sure. all of us in the room have a great regard for him. i've known him nine years now. i actually urged him to run for president a few years ago. >> and democrats use that hearing to rally around susan rice. >> to say that she is unqualified to be secretary of state, i think, is a mistake. and the way it keeps going, it's almost as if -- >> and the middle east on the brink. israel and hamas exchanging fire as casualties mount. am
the story, andrea mitchell. >>> beyond the shape of president obama's second term administration and who is in his cabinet, we now know that president obama has scheduled a major meeting for tomorrow in washington with labor leaders. that will be on tuesday and then on wednesday the president is going to be meeting with a lot of ceos and business leaders. the world of big business in some ways large and small chose mitt romney over president obama during this election season. they made their choice early and loudly and publicly and put a ton of money behind mr. romney. it did not work. their guy did not win. president obama got reelected any way. there presumably is some sort of reckoning from that. if not a reckoning, at least a turn of the page. the white house is signaling that the president wants to enlist business leaders in his effort to end bush tax cuts for those earning more than $250,000. an effort they might get something in return for. the white house characterizing their plans as a deal that would help bring down the deficit, but without destroying the economic recovery and
chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell in washington. andrea, good evening. >> good evening, brian. susan rice, by all accounts, the president's top choice to replace hillary clinton, had hoped to mend fences on capitol hill. it didn't turn out that way. the u.n. ambassador hasn't even been nominated to be secretary of state. but today she volunteered for a grilling in the senate. her critics were not satisfied. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> the bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before. >> reporter: rice acknowledged today she was wrong on a key fact, when she went on five morning programs and said benghazi was a copycat attack. >> what happened in benghazi was initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. >> reporter: there was no protest in benghazi, but she blamed the cia as she did last week. >> i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary. >> reporter: a
with our chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell in our d.c. newsroom. andrea, the significance of the american president ordering the american secretary of state into the breach at this hour? >> it's very important, it's very significant. this could be one of hillary clinton's final trips, only in the closing months of the administration, she's being sent in as a closer, to try to negotiate, if not a cease-fire, at least a cooling off period, a de-escalation, to try to win more time and prevent israel from invading. there really does seem to be very close synchronization with israel. there's no distance here between israel and the united states. netanyahu tonight in meetings with her thanked her profusely, thanked the united states for the iron dome defense system. the most important meeting is tomorrow with egypt's president morsi. morsi wants american aid for the survival of egypt, and she wants morsi to really pressure hamas to pull back and come up with some permanent agreement. interestingly clinton was going only briefly to ramallah, to the west bank. it will be more than

today until exactly one hour and 45 minutes later, when andrea mitchell, nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, broke into msnbc programming at 2:51 this afternoon with a remarkable scoop. you know, everybody in -- everybody in washington, everybody in politics right now, so focused on figuring out what's going to happen in the obama administration's second term. there's two components. one of them is policy and fighting stuff out with congress like you saw the president address in those remarks today in the east room. but the other side of it, the other side of what everybody is obsessed with right now is who's the obama administration for the president's second term? when andrea mitchell got on air today at 2:51 p.m. and announced that general david petraeus was resigning unexpectedly and immediately as head of the cia, that second question in washington, the question of who is going to hold the most important jobs in the obama administration now, who is going to run the country on a day-to-day basis, this thing that everybody knows is due to change dramatically for the second

they call for good reason, this fiscal cliff. andrea mitchell has more. >> reporter: the campaign was tough. victory is sweet. now comes the hard part. >> on january one, 2013, there will be a massive fiscal cliff of large spending cuts and tax increases. >> reporter: the economy could go off that cliff. so what exactly is the fiscal cliff? it is a nightmare combination of tax hikes and spending cuts that congress and the president agreed to. to force themselves into a compromise. but so far, they have not agreed on anything. so barring a last-minute fix at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve, the bush tax cuts expire. the alternative minimum tax kicks in. more than half of all married couples with two children would owe an additional $4,000 in taxes per year, for those with three children or more, that jumps to $4700. on top of that, the payroll tax cut would expire. so add on a 2% tax increase for most workers, with automatic spending cuts in a thousand government programs, including defense, medicare, extended unemployment benefits. everything but veteran's benefits and social secur

given so much to his country. we begin tonight with nbc's andrea mitchell who broke the story, in our d.c. news room. >> reporter: good evening, his resignation because of an extramarital affair sent shock waves through the administration and everyone who knew his record of stellar service. the cia has been under fire, but this had nothing to do with benghazi or politics. it was entirely personal. he was a four-star, the best known warrior of his generation, leader of combat forces in iraq and afghanistan before his commander-in-chief asked him to retire from the military and leave the cia. >> i have no doubt that director petraeus will guide our intelligence officials as they continue to adapt. >> i feel deeply if confirmed, to continue the endeavors which so many have given so much. >> reporter: but today, he announced after being married for 37 years, i showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in the extramarital affair. such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and a leader of an organization such as ours it was a stunning fall from grace, david petraeus had rocketed to the
. >> that was nbc's andrea mitchell reporting. >>> well, overseas now where fears of a new war in the middle east are on the rise after israelis took out the top military commander of hamas in a ferocious attack yesterday. and just this morning, the first israeli fatalities of the renewed conflict, three people killed in rocket fire from the gaza strip. nbc's martin fletcher has the latest now from tel aviv. >> reporter: palestinians in gaza are on the edge of a confrontation which neither side really wants, but that seems to be what's happening. israeli rocket attacks against gaza targeting the militant leaders of hamas are continuing tod today. they also are continue to attack rocket stockpiles from gaza. israel's goal, of course, is to stop, to prevent hamas from attacking israeli citizens with its rockets. there have been about 850 attacks this year, 100 in the last week alone, so that's what israel wants stop. at the same time, hamas has been retaliating today. at least 130 rockets fired from gaza into israeli cities. about 50 of those rockets were intercepted by israel's homemade antimissil
petraeus. as nbc's andrea mitchell reports jill kelley's connections went beyond the social elite and tampa, all the way to the white house. >> reporter: jill kelley and her twin sister met at the white house, touring it on november fourth with their families, two days before general james clapper, the director of national intelligence was even told about the petraeus scandal. jill kelley mentioned the visit in an e-mail, saying i was at the white house with my friends in the administration this weekend. the stress was surreal. white house officials say the kelley sisters were invited by a staffer who may have met at the air force base. jill kelley was bipartisan in her outreach, she and her sister dropped in on a fundraiser for marco rubio two years ago. they did not pay, sources said, just arrived and soon left. in an e-mail last march, jill kelley said she was trying to carrying out a threat to deep fry the quran, saying i have an e-mail getting this dealt with. records show paula broadwell also visited the white house complex at least twice for meetings on afghanistan in the executive o
the press." our chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. in our d.c. news room with that, good evening >> reporter: good evening, brian, white house and intelligence officials are denying charges that there was an attempt to whitewash the origins of the benghazi attack to protect the president politically. today, white house officials say they knew it was a terrorist attack from the beginning. there was never a question in their mind, but to them that didn't rule out that it could have been spontaneous or planned long in advance. and they still get conflicting information on who the suspects were. so they say the intelligence committee, not the white house, wrote unclassified talking points for susan rice that were deliberately vague to avoid the compromising legal issues. that led to charges that politics were involved, something the spy agencies tonight say is just not true. >> andrea mitchell, who will remain on this story for us, thank you. >>> there is also news tonight on a story that got a whole lot of national attention on friday and had people spending the weekend pass
? our chief correspondent affairs, andrea mitchell. >> reporter: good evening, on the 65th anniversary of the u.n. giving israel the land to become a state, they voted overwhelmingly to recognize the palestinians, but only as an observer state. and a non-voting official state it is a step for nationhood, and a potential flash place for the middle east. hours earlier, they were already celebrating across the west bank. in ramallah, he made a pizza with tomatoes, olives, and spinach, representing the palestinian flag >> this is what we longed for over 60 years, it is about time a flag that today's u.n. actions will still not make palestine a nation. >> the united nations general assembly is here to issue a birth certificate of the reality of the state of palestine. >> reporter: for palestinians watching the vote on the giant screen, it was a huge victory. in ramallah, nbc's martin fletcher. >> reporter: this is a great personal triumph, but what the people here most want is real change on the ground, and that won't happen without direct face to face negotiations with israel. >> reporter:
for guidance. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington right now at the white house, the political power lunch of 2012. president obama and mitt romney meeting for the frts time privately since the campaign after having been together serve times overall, including three debates. ruth marcus, and kristin welker. kristin what are they saying about the private lunch? not much, i guess? >> reporter: not a lot, andrea. they're tamping down expectations. jay carney saying there's no formal agenda to this lunch. of course president obama, during his victory speech in chicago, said he wanted to sit down, talk to mitt romney about his views how to move the country forward. you have to assume that would include a robust discussion of the fiscal cliff, given that is what lawmakers are talking about now. mitt romney just arrived here. we're not expecting anything huge to come out of this meeting. no appointment. for example, to the cabinet. but the president certainly, i think, hoping to engage in a serious conversation. this, as you point out, will be just the seventh time that these two have
focus of an fbi investigation. andrea mitchell first broke this story. she has more on how the fbi inadvertently found out about the general's affair. >> reporter: general david petraeus tumbled from the highest levels of government service after act thcknowledgint he called unacceptable behavior, an extramarital affair. another woman not related to petraeus felt she was being harassed and complained to the fbi. in recent weeks, the fbi traced the e-mails to broadwell and only stumbled upon the relationship with petraeus as a result. >> it's so politically sensitive that my guess is the decision was made near or at the top level of the fbi to sit down with general petraeus and have a discussion with him and let him know that this information had been discovered. >> reporter: broadwell has not been shy about her access to petraeus, co-hosting a barbecue with jon stewart. she spoke often about her connection to the cia director acknowledging it rubbed some in the military the wrong way. >> i was imbedded with general petraeus in afghanistan and it was a little confusing because i'm a
correspondents, andrea mitchell, david gregory, savannah guthrie, who will be with us the rest of the way, of course. same question to chuck. what are the moments you'll be looking for tonight? >> the keys to the game here, as it were, two teams, and is obama's defense better than romney's offense? obama's got to protect the midwest tonight, he can do that, the states he won in 2008, ohio, iowa, wisconsin, he gets a second term. is romney's offense better. can he expand the battleground map? if he does that, he has his shot. what does the vote and the voter look like? how white is it? how nonwhite is it? what's the gender gap like, and what about men, white men in particular, for one side or the other. we're going to be paying a lot of attention on that. >> we got to barnstorm around on air force one for about 24 hours last week. what struck me, it's not '08 and you and i were talking about this before we went on the air, in so many ways. >> when you think about 2008, that was the night this country elected the first african-american president. four years later, if you look at the data, t

correspondent andrea mitchell and "new york times" columnist tom friedman. who better to have to discuss this. tom, as the two sides get closer to the brink, based on your experience and reporting, where is this going? >> let's just go around the horn, david, quickly. i think hamas is trying to use this moment to both break out of the blockade and try to end targeted killing of its leaders from israel, and trying to take advantage of the new arab spring balance of power, the muslim brotherhood in egypt, to leverage that possibility. israel has been watching for the last six to nine months hamas bringing in longer and longer range missiles from iran. i think they saw this as an opportunity of necessity to take those out, missiles that can now hit tel aviv and jerusalem. this is a real problem for egypt. you have a new government there that needs money from the united states. they don't want to be caught in a struggle between the struggle. for iran, this is a godsend. it takes world attention off their nuclear program and puts pressure on all the more moderate forces in the arab world, puts the
>>> right now on "andrea mitchell reports" on the road again after republicans reject his opening bid, president obama hits the philadelphia suburbs campaigning hard for his plan to raise taxes on the rich. >> it's not acceptable to me and i don't think it's acceptable for you for a handful of members of congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage because they don't want rates on upper incomes to go up. that doesn't make sense. >> the speaker was quick to respond. increasing tax rates draws money away from our economy that need to be invested in our economy to put the american people back to work. it's the wrong approach. we're willing to put revenues on the table, closing loopholes and not raising rates. we think it's better for the economy, pure and simple. >> and just now, hitting the jackpot. the small town missouri couple who have had more than their share of hard times win the powerball and with the great american generous spirit are taking it in stride. >> our main concern is our family and, of course, and we have a very large family and then next is our charities we'll
